Former Boston College running back Jamall Anderson released a two-minute video showing alcohol being served and strippers present at a recruiting party at the university in 1995.

The video, obtained by TMZ Sports, shows then-underaged recruits taking shots and getting lap dances from strippers, presumably in hopes of landing the players' commitments to the program.

"This 22-year-old video, which is alleged to have taken place at Boston College, depicts unauthorized and unacceptable behavior that does not reflect the culture of BC or the standards to which our student-athletes are held," Boston College said in a statement.

Anderson admitted to committing credit card fraud to help fund the parties. In 1997, he was among a group of players who were kicked off the team for their involvement in betting on college football, including B.C. games. 

At the time, Anderson said people in the program were aware of the violations.

"Gambling was so universal on the team" Anderson said to the Associated Press at the time. "All the coaches knew we were gambling."

Anderson is releasing the video in part to help promote a new book he says will help young student-athletes learn from his mistakes.
